Through our Congregational Health Ministry, Methodist Health System has formed partnerships with area churches in an effort to improve the physical and spiritual health of the people in these congregations. This ministry provides guidance, shares resources, and assists church leaders in meeting the wellness needs of these communities of faith.

The church has been intimately involved with the concept of wholeness, wellness, and healing since its inception. This program embodies our belief in the unity of body, mind, and spirit, a concept deeply rooted in both the Old and New Testaments.

Congregational nursing is an international ministry within congregations that gives these concepts and ideas a visible presence. The  Parish nurse works with the pastor and the Health Ministry Committee composed of other caring members to fulfill the healing mission of the church.

Methodist Health System’s Congregational Health Ministry may assist in the following ways:

  • Assessing the mental, spiritual, and physical health needs of the congregation
  • Creating programs for strengthening the membership’s role in the prevention of disease and illness
  • Recognizing and supporting the close relationship between physical, emotional, and spiritual health
  • Meeting the health and healing needs of individuals
